LAGUNA AZUL

The lake's greatest attraction is its teeming flora and fauna.

The District of Sauce is located in the Department of San Martin, at more or less 16 kms. from the right hand margin of the Huallaga river, in midst of the tropical forest region.

Traveling over a distance of 36 kms. from Tarapoto, the capital of the department, to Puerto Lopez, one reaches the Huallaga river which is crossed aboard a 'ferry' made out of three canoes. From its right margin and after a further 16 kms., we come across the Sauce Lagoon; more known as "Laguna Azul" To Related image to the Multimedia Gallery(Blue Lagoon) in the world of tourism. Originally, its name was Laguna de Saucicocha (Saucicocha Lagoon) due to the presence of "sauce" (willow), a medicinal plant abundant along its banks. One of its main characteristics is its diversity of flora: 'uņa de gato" or "garabato bachuja", "ajo sacha", "ayahuasca", "cola de caballo", "chuchuasha", "malva" and "paico", just to mention a few. Moreover, this lagoon is also widely visited because in its beds it shelters the highly-renown pink pearl.

The lagoon is believed as being the result of some volcanic eruption thousands of years back and its history, as well as that of the entire region, is abundant in traditions and legends. It counts with two-star and three-star hostels and its waters are propitious for fishing, sailing, motor boats or simply for resting.

In this marvelous and fascinating jungle spot, tourists can also enjoy of walks along the lagoon's left margin, passing through the village of Dos de Mayo, as far as Sunicocha or "Lago Lindo" (Beautiful Lake), which, the same as "Limoncocha", lies in a beautiful and hospitable 350-hectare ecological complex. One of its main attractions is the profusion of flora and fauna and all, from orchids to deer, monkeys and 'otorongos', evolve in their natural environment.
